I think the question is how to and why should you use a wetting solution to install a rear bumper protector. 


My answer to that would be so you don't screw up and have it permanently stuck in the wrong position.  The fluid lets you move it around some, then when you are happy with the position, you press out the fluid starting from the center working you way out.

I stuck one of the bumper protectors on without wetting the suface.  You just need to be careful and take your time about placing it.  The wetting solution allows you to move it around a bit (as IWRBB suggested) before squeegeeing out the water.  Nice bumper protector and looks great, but definitely NOT worth the $$ I paid for it.  It might be ok at half the price.
